Oooooh, here we go! It is almost that time. We tend to lose our minds here at TME *just a tad* in the name of covering the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it’s also one of the most exciting projects of the year. It’s fun to try on a bunch of different things, put them together into outfits and…well, it gives us a great opportunity to construct our own fall/winter wardrobes.

Also! This time around, I am actually giddy about some of the stuff I am seeing in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview. I have my clicking finger ready to ‘add to cart’! (But in the meantime, while I wait for the sale to officially launch on August 4th, I’ll keep this list bookmarked!)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Preview: Cam’s Wish List

So, on that note and without further adieu, here are the pieces that I instantly got excited about when I saw them. I can see a multitude of outfits coming together when I look at the collage (below)….eee! I managed to pull together stuff that I could imagine working together (like these cargo pants I would wear with EVERYTHING), formulated into several solid looks. I think I may have to add in a few pieces here and there (maybe stuff I already have from past seasons, etc.), but essentially, my wish list will serve as a base from which to work off of for all of my looks this fall and winter. And if nothing else, save this Free People slouchy sweater for yourself — I can’t stop thinking about it.

I’m hoping to order every single one of these pieces below (if I can beat the masses to it), so that I can show you all what they are like on my person (or…my ‘tall person’ as S might say)…and also, how I end up styling them all together, in different ways. I can’t wait!

1/ Taner Bar Short Necklace: A simple, elegant…but cool piece of jewelry. I have a very similar gold one that many have asked me about. I would like to get a silver version!

2/ rag & bone Mesh Belt: Belts like this always make me think of Carrie from SATC. I’d love to style over a white dress or with high-waisted denim, with a white top.

9/ BlankNYC Suede Miniskirt: 100% wearable with a taller boot…for anyone wondering. I tried on a similar style last year and it was amazing with taller boots.

Top 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks:
Tops, Sweaters, Jeans, Shoes, Lounge & More

I expanded on my wish list by including the additional pieces that caught my eye…and I think its all stuff that you might find very exciting! I separated them into categories for ya, so that you can get a good, well-rounded look at the fun stuff from the sale. These are all of the items I think are worth purchasing — all the ones that can really be positive additions to your closet and uplift your outfits.

Tops

I mean, that FRAME Keyhole Party Top would make any Zoom call a kicking’ good time…just bring the poppers.


Bottoms

Madewell, rag + bone, FRAME denim…all on point! My gosh.


Sweaters

Cozy wear anyday sweaters from La Ligne, All In Favor, Vince, etc. I am thinking they’ll totally “help” with virtual learning days coming this Fall. heh heh…


Jackets

That blue jacket from Avec Les Filles! Beautiful. Oh, and Blanc Noir with their sassy moto/blazer number…


Dresses

Topshop always coming through with the super cool dresses. ALLSAINTS has been calling my name, recently, too…that Sami Maxi Dress!


Shoes

I didn’t always wear EILEEN FISHER, but once you start…you really can’t stop. They have a fantastically comfortable looking sneaker. The same applies to Sorel and their edgy new sneak!


Bags

Longchamp has me drooling over their leather shoulder bag…ugh. Gimme!


Accessories

Sunglasses are a must, of course, and Quay is my current favorite. Happy to see them in the sale! I need to give a shout-out to Brixton, as well, with their Baker Boy Cap. I die.


Lounge + Intimates

True & Co. is my favorite for bras. Seriously. The best! I am excited to try on the pair of Alo leggings and bra top (below)…I foresee living in something like that. Also, Nike joggers for the win! Free People has some goodies in the lounge department, as well.

See you all soon with the outfits! Looking forward to it. 🙂

Cheers,

  1. Cam, the link to the v-neck ribbed cardigan goes to a long top shop sweater instead. Could you fix it to go to the right sweater? Can’t seem to find it by searching.

  2. Those Superga are calling my name. First thing I put on my wish list when the preview started. Love them. Glad someone else is a fan.

    • I do not! I am sorry…it’s a couple of years old. There is a similar style that will be part of then NSale! I included it in this post. Cheers.

  3. Can you let us know who it’s made by? I might need to eBay and Poshmark this one as it is calling my name BIG time!!

  4. Do you think the Levi’s will be long enough? I’m 5’10” which I think is similar to you. Also wondering how they fit. Size up? Thanks!

  5. Did you order the Supergas? Mine haven’t arrived yet, so I’m curious as to how they fit/feel. It doesn’t seem like anyone else liked them but the two of us. LOL
